From costumes to candy: Here are some tips for having a safe Halloween amid COVID pandemic
Forget the usual approach of putting all the candy in one bowl and handing it out at your door. Make individual bags of candy the trick-or-treaters can grab easily from a disinfected table set up near your sidewalk. Everyone should wear a fabric mask with at least two layers -- a Halloween mask doesn’t count! Once you get the candy home, consider switching it out with some candy from the store. You can also quarantine the candy you collected for a few days to reduce the risk from touching the wrappers.
